Putting a brilliant vocalist in front of Basie is a recipe for gourmet succulence. There is little to chose between the 1962 session with arrangements by Neil Hefti and the 1964 collection arranged by Quincy Jones. What bursts through are the inspirational captivating vocals of Sinatra. Best known for his popular ballads (crooning), here he has the blast of Basie behind him. If you can't swing with his orchestra, then goodbye. Hard to pick a standout song. 'Learnin' The Blues', 'I Can't Stop Loving You'. 'The Good Life', 'My Kind of Girl', are personal favourites. Not a dud amongst them. Basie's band blow big time. The soloists burst through, particularly Frank Weiss. I recently reviewed Tony Bennett with Basie. Get them both and enjoy two masters. I have my preference but they are both wonderful examples of songsters and superlative big band at their peak. Matchless.
